Louisiana teen killed at crossing

A 17-year-old Bossier City resident was killed at a railroad crossing without crossing arms this Thursday. Lights and bells were reportedly working, but such equipment has malfunctioned in the past. The boy’s Kia Optima was pushed 300 yards from the point of impact. Paramedics attempted to revive him, but the accident was too severe. Another railroad crossing accident occurred here last August, but fortunately the driver survived that crash.
